Atlantic Future Policy Paper No. 1: “A Pan-Atlantic Agenda for EU-US Relations” written by Daniel S. Hamilton, Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation Professor and Executive Director Center for Transatlantic Relations Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies, is out.
Growing connections across the wider Atlantic should prompt the EU and the US to incorporate issues of pan-Atlantic import into their traditional bilateral agenda. First, the partners must strengthen their own core relationship across the Atlantic North, particularly through trade and energy initiatives. Second, the partners should redefine the ''Atlantic Community'' to engage countries and societies across the full Atlantic space to promote economic growth, human development and energy links; enhance human security and resilience; and address issues pertaining to the Atlantic Ocean itself. Third, the EU and the US must also engage ''Asian Hemisphere'' countries on ''Atlantic Hemisphere'' issues as Asia pivots to the Atlantic.
